Ricin Find Stops Most Senate Business

WASHINGTON - A white powder found in Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist's office tested Tuesday as an "active" form of the deadly poison ricin, forcing cancellation of most Senate business in the second such scare from a lethal toxin to hit the capital.

Sen. Tom Daschle, the Democratic leader, likened the events to the 2001 incident in which his office received letters containing potentially deadly anthrax.

"Terrorists acts, criminal attacks of this kind, will not stop the work of the Senate or the Congress," Daschle said at a briefing.

Uh, Tom? TOM? What do the words "forcing cancellation of most Senate business" mean to you? Did you mean that terrorists would not stop you from briefings at which you'll say the terrorists won't stop you?
